The presenters will conduct a live interview with a participant who has struggled to lose weight or maintain a weight loss. They will demonstrate specific techniques to motivate the dieter and help him/her consistently use good eating habits, and solve dieting dilemmas.
This demonstration will show how to bring the positive forms of the “archetypal energies” of strength, softness and playfulness into a challenging situation in order to explore what other choices they make possible.
This demonstration will focus on a set of strategies aimed at analyzing factors associated with dysfunctional and/or out-of-control behaviors. Included will be a brief review of a missing links analysis aimed at understanding the absence of expected or needed behaviors.
Feedback-Informed Treatment (FIT) dramatically improves both retention and outcome of behavioral health services. FIT involves routinely and formally soliciting feedback from clients regarding the therapeutic alliance and outcome of care and using the resulting information to inform and tailor service delivery. Dr. Miller will demonstrate how clinicians can integrate FIT into their work regardless of theoretical orientation or professional discipline.
This demonstration will show how problems/symptoms may be viewed as attempts by the creative unconscious to bring transformation and healing, and how the development of a generative trance can allow that transformation to be realized.
The modern perspective of hypnosis considers the role of attention and absorption in catalyzing adaptive responses. Hypnosis provides a context for developing new associations on multiple levels that have therapeutic potential. In this clinical demonstration, a hypnosis session will be conducted to assist the client in evolving resources that may be helpful to personal growth.
This live demonstration will show the use of Solution-Oriented Therapy (by the originator of the method), an approach to change which evokes rather than instructs, diagnoses or attempts to correct pathology.
The Mind-Body Healing Experience (MHE) is a standardized approach to therapeutic hypnosis by facilitating gene expression that has been documented in peer-reviewed clinical research since 2008. Beginners use it as an easy way to bypass resistance in people who wish to solve their own problems privately in their own way.
